Design Destination: Palm Springs

Like New York City, Los Angeles, and Miami, Palm Springs evokes a certain style that’s all its own. From the 1930s through the 1970s, stars flocked en masse to the desert resort, filling it with the fabulous homes and boundary-pushing architecture that make the city a must-see today for anyone who appreciates vintage glamour. Just as the clean-lined mid-century design states “Palm Springs”, so does a specific kind of furniture style: Bold and graceful, with mid-century flair and the occasional pop of color. Here are just a few of our favorite pieces currently for sale at Viyet that exude Palm Springs style:

Mid-Century Modern Chrome Sputnik Chandelier

Why we love it: We can just picture this above the bed of a vintage starlet or perhaps above the sleek bar at a fabulous hotel. It’s equally memorable in a home, adding unmistakable mid-century glam anywhere.

J. Robert Scott Dining Table

Why we love it: Balancing clean lines with a mass that certainly holds its own in a dining room, this head-turning table has a unique finish (made by encasing wood in a veneer) you won’t want to cover up.

Vintage Brass and Stone Geometric Forms

Why we love them: One of the best design lessons from the mid-century era was the emphasis on accessories. These brass and stone forms bring plenty of interesting texture to tabletops and shelves, adding a dash of the unexpected to everyday settings.

Lane Furniture Mid-Century Modern End Tables

Why we love it: Optimistic hues are the hallmark of the Palm Springs style. It doesn’t get cheerier than the delightful sunny yellow color of these fantastic end tables. Pair them with a sleek sofa, or as the straight-lined counter to more fanciful pieces. Such as:

B&B Italia Metropolitan Swivel Armchairs

Why we love them: Recalling the trend for all things “atomic” in the mid-century, these shapely chairs make a statement. Their angular shapes make for a surprisingly comfortable seat.
